Self-Regulation 

“The first and best victory is to conquer self.”
— Plato

Behaviorally, self-regulation is the ability to act in your long-term best interest, consistent with your deepest values. (Violation of one's deepest values causes guilt, shame, and anxiety, which undermine well-being.) Emotionally, self-regulation is the ability to calm yourself down when you're upset and cheer yourself up when you're down.
